    Hello y'all,

    I know a number of you here have read my blog about living in the desert with four other women, working our collective tail feather off to scratch out a living.

    Well, since I'm the "techie" and the writer for the group, I'm tasked with creating an income by marketing our wool, our eggs, and maybe... just maybe... our story.

    To that end, I've entered a contest.

    If I win, I could get paid 80K to tell that story all next year via my very highly ranked blog.

    Ok, enough about all that...

    Here's the support I need from y'all... and ALL YOUR FRIENDS, FAMILY, AND PEOPLE YOU SEND E-MAIL TO.

    Please go to "Blog for a Year " and vote for me. Vote for me today, tomorrow, and everyday for the rest of the year. Ask everyone else to do the same.

    I have links back to BYC, and have taken advantage of the generous offer from Nifty-Chicken to create a "personal page"... That serves as a "static" page for our little farm.

    The blog forms the basis for a book project... and yes, the book will have a lot of pictures and previously untold stories about how the four of us got together, our successes, our setbacks, and some really funny stories about non-Morman's living in SW Utah... talk about culture shock.

    Ok... now please... Go Vote and tell everyone else to do the same thing. Stuff the ballot box each and every day... I'm about 6 months behind the first folks who found out about this.

    Thanks Poison Ivy,

    Be sure to vote daily... it's perfectly legal, and even encouraged!

    Oh, and I just updated the blog with another post and pictures... including one of the chicks stumble-tumbling out their door shortly after sunrise.

    Good morning y'all!

    Wow! Thanks for all the support.

    Here's a quick status report (I get an update from them everyday). This will help all of us know where I stand...

    As of 6pm last night,

    Here is where you stand right now:

    Current Rank: 138 of 160 (you want to be #1)
    Total votes: 6
    Total donations: $0

    Your profile has been viewed 52 times and 5 people have visited your blog from our site.

    Now, the one thing they recommend, but I don't have... is a myspace page. Can anyone help me in that area?

    I've been going to several of my favorite forums, and have sent an IM to my Yahoo buddies.

    Next on the list is a letter to my personal e-mail list, a letter to my ezine list, and then a press release.

    Oh... and think your support isn't important? This morning already I have 19 votes... That's totally awesome!

    Thanks from the very bottom of my heart for all the support... remember, tell your friends and family, and vote daily... stuffing the ballot box is not only good... it's encouraged!
